ZIF Video Of The Week: Open Mike Eagle: Your Backpack Past

This track is my personal favorite off the 4NMLHSPTL album, likely due to my appreciation of sardonic quips. Here are 5 thoughts about this video that I hope matter, a little.

1. Shoutout to the director of this video, this was not the direction I saw this video going, but there was plenty of candid footage to intermix with the wildly sarcastic scene with the honeys in the bikinis, dope.

2. Speaking of the bikinis, it makes me smile to think about how they must have showed up to the “rap video/pool scene” with all sorts of expectations, plenty of racks on racks references and some kush getting blown. Nah, you girls got some artists who used you effectively to prove a point about the lameness that aesthetics such as yours propagates.

3. What’s up with Has-Lo, can this dude put out a major project or something already? Streets are ready.

4. Watch the video muted. It looks like an extremely typical rap video.

5. Watch the video with the audio jacked. Shit’s dope isn’t it?
